Beirut-based Starch Foundation presented new Spring-Summer collection during Fashion Forward (FFWD) event. The Starch Foundation is a non-profit organization which helps promoting Lebanese emerging designers. This season designers are Jo Baaklini and Timi Hayek. Timi Hayek notes that this year's collection is made for women who want to feel modern, comfort, fresh and chic. Designer combined stripes, prints, pleats, while the colors are navy blue, monochrome and ivory. I personally love the sheer fabrics use. My favorite look is one dress with a collar which features a drawn digital print. Designer Jo Baaklini line comes with strong colors, graphic prints and classic cuts. His season was inspired by warm climes of the Levant and Gulf.
